Following a few years of hard work and great play and results, the club has found itself elevated to the Premier League of the Northern Football Alliance. This will be a stern examination for all concerned but a challenge which we are all looking forward to. So why not come down to the Burn and cheer us on
Junior football is back in Haltwhistle, this season we have two junior sides, Haltwhistle Ajax and Haltwhistle Benfica representing the club in the Tynedale Mini Soccer League. They will be playing their home games at Haltwhistle Primary school.
Following the most difficult of possible starts to our time in the Premier League, we have settled down and currently find ourselves placed 12th in the league table. we will seek to further stabilise and build as the season progresses.
Our Juniors have enjoyed their first batch of fixtures and have had some great performances. they will return to league action in early November.
As the season comes to a climax, we have had a reasonable return to football at eh highest level in the Northern Alliance. We have had some excellent results and some disappointing ones as well. Going into the final few games of the season, we have the possibility of finishing in 10th place in the table, which would have been above expectations at the beginning of the season. Our Junior teams have gone from strength to strength, and we look forward to adding another new junior side next season. Our adult prize giving will take place on the season's final day on May 7th, and our junior prize giving two weeks later.
As pre-season training closes, we look forward to a return to competitive action as we begin our league program with a home game against Seaton Delaval on Saturday 6th August, kick-off at 2.30 pm.
We have also added a third junior side to the club this season with a new under-7 side coached by Dan Kirkup. Keep an eye out on all social media outlets for news and information on what promises to be a busy and exciting season.
